Tonight I taught my friend how to make a green screen video. We talked about so many different possibilities. She is going to start with Readers Theater...which is a great place to start. I just started using the Do Ink Green Screen app, so there may be easier ways to do things than what I showed her tonight. I am going to put down all the steps of what we talked about so that she can remember them and so that you can try out the steps if you want to.
The first thing we did was open the camera app to take a picture of the background that we wanted for our project.
She clicked on the + sign to add a new project.
She then clicked on the image button. This will allow her to find the photo that she wants to use as her background.
She clicked on All Photos.
She then found the picture of her background.
We repeated this process 3 times, making 3 different videos.
When we were done with the videos, we went back to the Home Screen.
She viewed it and then selected Use.
You will notice that you now see the book in the background and the green screen is gone.
When she was done, she clicked save.
She entered the email address of who she wanted to share the video with.
Her video was now shared with whoever she wanted to share it with. Typically this is parents or coworkers.
You can view a little clip of what we made.

I also add my videos to my Seesaw folders so that kids have it for their viewing and for their parents to view.
